I love scouring local op shops and garage sales for items that may be of use in my role as a recreational activities officer. Recycling is not only good for the environment, but provides the materials for interesting and enjoyable activities for our residents.

Great ideas! Thanks Raelene and Shelley - if you have any photos to share we'd love to see.

I also like to use older books. as altered journals in my creative arts groups. Using matte medium and gesso to prepare the pages, it gives a new surface for creative art, and journaling. This private book then looks like any other book on their bookshelf and is "hidden" from view from others.
